MODA’s Drink in Design: James Sommerville

Grab a beverage, any beverage, and get comfortable because MODA is bringing design to you!

On June 2, we’ll be talking to. James Sommerville of Known Unknown.

Leaving UK design school in the mid 1980’s, James Sommerville’s focus was to make it as a professional designer. After 35 years from agency start-up, navigating multiple recessions, avoiding bankruptcy, to then joining a 125 year old company (as VP Global Design at Coca-Cola) preaching the value of design, to today launching a distributed creative platform in the middle of a pandemic. He will talk about how designers have to choose to survive, as well as design.
